NOLAN CREEK (Lamar County). Nolan Creek, also known as Lower Pine Creek, rises ten miles west of Paris in east central Lamar County (at 33°42' N, 95°20' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on Little Pine Creek, just south of Farm Road 195 (at 33°48' N, 95°20' W). On maps from the 1930s, Nolan and Little Pine creeks are labeled Lower Pine Creek. Nolan Creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
